Carnaval Heist 2008 - Safari Man
One of the better demonstrated themes at the Carnaval parade in Heist. These guys were very funny and cool. The man on the image was willing to strike a serious pose. Afterwards he took a picture of me with the camera in his hand :-)
TECH-INFO: For framing I used the Dutch tilt
which makes the image more dynamic. A nice technique as long you don't used it in all your images. During capturing the parade I was shooting JPGs which is OK in case you only do small corrections or enhancements. First I run it through DxO Lighting (part of DxO Optics Pro) and cropped it to 4/3 format . Afterwards I used a bunch of curves, vibrancy/saturation, HSL and brightness masked adjustment layers in Photoshop. Just by painting on the masks I darkened the background and brightened/enhanced the subject or various parts of it.
UPDATE: I received an email of DxO Labs
with a coupon for a reduction of 15% on the products DxO Optics Pro and DxO Filmpack. I think it's valid until 31st of March. To claim your discount just go to the DxO Labs online store (https://shop.dxo.com
) and enter my Personal Sponsor Code: RAF9GX4KU as a discount voucher. I'll be honest, every time someone gets 15% reduction using this code I get an Amazon shopping voucher.
